What we treat

Below on this page, you’ll find the full list of what we treat and the programs we offer. A high percentage of injuries and pain syndromes result from weakness and/or tightness in neighboring regions of the musculoskeletal system. Our therapists evaluate possible compensatory patterns in addition to the area of pain or loss of function. This thorough examination allows us to better identify and eliminate all underlying causes so patients achieve lasting results. We also focus on educating you, so that you’re empowered to take control of their injury, grow stronger than ever, and prevent recurrences.

We understand the impact that pain and loss of function can have on the lives of our patients. Our entire staff, from the front desk to our clinical team, provides a compassionate and motivational environment dedicated to healing. We ensure we are meeting each patient’s unique needs so their experience is both enjoyable and rewarding.

We have extensive experience treating a variety of conditions including shoulder injuries and surgeries, knee injuries and reconstructions/replacements, spinal conditions and surgeries, sports injuries and muscle traumas, chronic and acute pain syndromes, neck conditions and surgeries, pre and post-surgical cases, geriatric conditions, work-related injuries, chronic pain conditions, lower back pain, general strains and sprains, joint replacement recovery, vestibular and balance conditions, auto accidents, and much more!

Ivy Rehab/Excel has been nothing short of amazing! I just completed my second go around there for a different issue and my PT Zach was nothing short of extraordinary! When I first went in, I couldn’t walk without excruciating pain & now I am back on my feet again. They are extremely clean/sanitary, friendly, patient & supportive! I truly can’t recommend them enough!!

I’ve gone to other Therapists and found Excel/PT the best by far. Fran helped me get rid of my back pain and provided me with a sensible plan to keep the pain away. He and his staff are outstanding!

The two physical therapists I worked with were very professional, caring and knowledgeable. My shoulder pain, restricted motion was diagnosed on the first visit, without any medical imaging procedures such as X-ray, ultrasound or MRI which I (being a physician myself) found refreshingly impressive.I was treated accordingly for 5-6 weeks and the symptoms essentially resolved. It is a good place to receive medical care, and I highly recommend Excel in Berwyn.

Only been once but feel very taken care of and they are extremely interested in your recovery. Catherine told me she had only been at the Berwyn location for a few weeks (but seasoned therapist) and she was phenomenal. Really took the time to assess me thoroughly and understands my end goal. So far, very pleased by my Rothman doctor’s recommendation.

I was referred to Excel PT Berwyn by my PCP, Dr. Katie Lawlor, at a time when I was experiencing extreme back pain; unable to sit, relax or sleep, get in and out of bed, or climb stairs without considerable effort and discomfort. Having been through physical therapy just once before for a different issue, I wasn’t sure what to expect. And given my extreme level of back pain, and frustrations over ineffective self-help exercise regimens and pain relievers, I actually wasn’t expecting very much at all. I was also concerned about insurance coverage, and the out of pocket costs I would incur for treatment that at the time, I didn’t give very much hope for actually working. That all changed after my first visit, which was conducted as a tele-health session with Amber Siminitus, PT, DPT, Cert MDT. That one visit, and the program that followed, literally changed my life, and gave me hope that my back problems could be corrected. Amber is a gem of a person: A highly competent, caring, professional, who is passionately committed to her patients and their well-being. Amber’s diagnosis was so spot-on, and her treatment was so effective, it was almost like she had herself experienced the pain that I was going through. Amber’s confidence in the program we worked through together was contagious, and it didn’t take long for me to become fully committed to my progress, and to take ownership of the outcome. I now live pain free, and continue a lighter version of the program on my own, to build and maintain strength in my back and spine. And as for my cost concerns; while I ended up incurring some out of pocket costs (well worth it!), Amber worked with Excel’s management office to ensure that my insurance covered what I was entitled to. I can’t say enough about Amber and her Berwyn colleagues. I give them my highest recommendation, and an enthusiastic five stars. Forever grateful, Jim Devine, Devon PA

Great facility with friendly PT's and clean equipment. Fran gave me a very complete evaluation on my first appointment which made me very confident in what therapy would be like. About 5 sessions into my therapies and I am feeling somewhat better but still in need of lots more progress for a complete recovery from major back surgery.

Very attentive and helpful PTs if you are coming in with a sports injury. They listen to you and look to make sure you have the care you need to get through daily life and can renter your sport with care and mindfulness. I’ve seen multiple PTs for my hip injury over the years and finally got the help I needed to stay out of PT. I highly recommend Steve!

I have worked them on several occasions and they are great. Really great therapists who are knowledgeable, caring and enthusiastic. Having the same therapist each visit ensures consistency and detailed knowledge about you. They make sure you leave with a good plan for working on your own so you can continue to improve. I highly recommend them.

After a total knee replacement, the great folks at Excel Berwyn (with a special shout out to Fran) have made all the difference in getting me from a "dead start" to well along in the rehab process. The goals (driving, flex, etc.) are being achieved and the light at the end of this tunnel is very close. Cannot recommend Excel Berwyn highly enough.

I am so thrilled that I found Excel in Berwyn. My doctor recommended them for me. I have primarily been using Francis, who is wonderful. I have a partially torn rotator cuff which has been extremely painful and limited my shoulder movement. I've been going about 2 months and making great strides. He knows when to push me and also when to ease up when I'm really hurting. I've used other therapists when needed, and they are all wonderful. The care is amazing. You are with your therapist for the whole time of your treatment- not given to someone else in the middle of your treatment. I've had to go for much therapy over the many years. I have NEVER been to one like Excel. I will never go to another therapy place but theirs. (and I'm sure that their other locations are great too). Thank you Fran for getting me back in motion- I'm starting to feel so much better and not going to need surgery because of your care. !!

"I was amazed and how quickly the exercises emily gave me started to work.""If you are looking for a PT, I highly recommend this facility and their staff.""I couldn't be happier with the care I received from this office."

Fran McGarvey is the ultimate professional. He is skilled, accommodating and extremely knowledgeable. I cannot imagine a better experience in therapy

Great team and great patient care

For me the mark of a great PT organization is not just limited to helping you with the issue that took you there in the first place. A great PT organization exudes a PMA (positive mental attitude) which was the mantra of Pat Croce when he was in the business.At Excel Berwyn, you have a group of talented therapists that not only help you feel good, but make you feel good by exhibiting that great PMA. As crazy as this sounds, I will hate it when my PT time is up.

Highly recommend!My therapist, Britanny, was very professional, compassionate and skilled. She reevaluated my original diagnosis after 3 sessions and I was getting worse. She discussed her observations with my doctor, he agreed and changed the script. Improvement was immediate. Four weeks later I am completely pain free and can resume my normal activities.
20:01 06 Apr 19
Liked that I worked with 1 PT, not a PTA. Seemed to be a very pleasant, collegial work environment. Great attention to cleanliness, infection control.
12:54 05 Mar 19
Excellent, thorough and expert care. Patients are handled promptly and are given plenty of time participating in the therapy. Follow-up home exercises are offered as well. The therapists are top notch. I am making pretty good progress and highly recommend Excel.

I have just started my therapy here and I can not say enough wonderful things about the atmosphere and friendly therapists and staff. Every session that I have had I am met with the same level of service and friendly professionalism.Emily has already done amazing things for my pain levels and given me actual useful tools to heal. Their mixture of hands on therapy and strength building has been a ray of optimism in my difficult medical journey.

I have been attending Excel in Berwyn for the last 4 weeks. Emily, my therapist has encouraged me and I have made wonderful progress on shoulder surgery. The facility is efficient, clean and has all the equipment needed to make your therapy successful. I saw the doctor today for a follow up and he was impressed with the progress. I highly recommend this facility and the staff.

I've had two different therapists for two different problems over a couple of years, and both have been very good at solving my neck, shoulder and leg issues. Great people, a nice facility and good results. I'm very happy with them.
